PLAY BY PLAY

“Jungle Boy” Jack Perry is here!

Pittsburgh fires up for Jungle Life as this Young Pillar goes to the ring. Jack gets the mic and hears the fans singing along. JB tells Pittsburgh- Wait, Sammy Guevara is here! The Spanish God swaggers out to the ring, to JB’s annoyance. Sammy gets himself a mic while fans boo, and Sammy tells “Jungle Jack, ain’t nobody-” Wait! Darby Allin is here! The Steel City cheers again as the Relentless One makes his own way to the ring. Darby gets his own mic, and he tells Sammy, “out of all the Pillars, I’ve known you the longest. And oddly enough, I like you the most. Out of all three of us standing in the ring, I think to the fans, you’re least qualified to fight for the championship.

“That’s because perception is reality, and the people view you as a follower and not a champion. The biggest difference between me and Sting and you and Jericho, is me and Sting view each other as equals. It’s not called ‘The Sting Appreciation Society.’ But listen, you became TNT Champion on your own. And if you wanna become AEW Champion, you’re gonna have to do it on your own, because I think Chris Jericho is holding you back. But if you have a problem with that, if you and Chris have a problem with that, come say something to me and Sting about it. I’d love to talk it out.”

As for Jungle Boy, or Jack Perry, whatever he goes by nowadays… Darby will go with Jack. But “Jungle Jack” works, too. Out of all the Pillars, JB had to work the least to get here. He was handpicked because of some California Kliq. It’s true! And when he was first announced as AEW’s newest hire, Darby was still living out of his car, not knowing if he’d even make it here. And in that moment, Darby was jealous. But it didn’t take long for the jealousy to disappear, because when he saw what Jack is all about, nothing intimidated Darby. Nothing.

Jack steps up and tells Darby, “I’m standing here, looking at that paint all over your face. And everywhere we go, I look on in the crowd, and I see a bunch of little kids with that same paint on their faces. And all I can think is, ‘Oh boy, if they could only know what you’re really like.'” Darby is antisocial, unfriendly, rude to everyone back there who isn’t “cool enough.” But Darby’s saying he was jealous of JB while living out of his car, all because JB got signed first. But wrestling wasn’t even Darby’s first choice. Darby is only here because he didn’t make it as a skateboarder. Sammy sits back and enjoys this, but JB turns his attention to him!

JB says for Sammy, “it would be an immense challenge to come up with a new way to describe what a dirtbag you are. We don’t have that kind of time, so instead, I might surprise everyone a little bit. And I’ll tell you that out of Darby and MJF, I actually respect you the most. Because for better or worse–and trust me, it is always worse–with Sammy Guevara, what you see is exactly what you get. And hell, I even respect, every time you come out in this ring, you put your body, your life, your future, on the line. And I respect that. But… You are still a scumbag piece of sh*t.” Fans fire up for that one!

Sammy says okay, fine! He was all for talking trash to the face paint freak, but if Jack wants to get real, let’s get real! JB hates MJF so much, but in reality, JB is just like him! Both of them were handpicked to be here as the golden children of AEW! Let’s go back to the first ever Double or Nothing: Darby didn’t work here; Sammy was on the preshow; and after Sammy’s match, he went to the balcony to watch the show, and what’d he see? Bret “The Hitman” Hart was in the ring with MJF and “Jungle Boy.” And we can go back to the most recent PPV: Darby wasn’t on it, and neither was Sammy. But who was? MJF and Jungle Boy!

See, that’s why Sammy can relate the most to Darby. Despite their differences, they are two sides of the same coin. They will do whatever it takes, even risk their lives and do whatever crazy thing to make it, and they did. Fans applaud that because it is true. And honestly, Sammy has to thank Darby. Darby gave Sammy hope in this place. When Sammy wasn’t doing so hot in AEW, he watched as Darby lost match after match, PPV after PPV, and then bam! First Pillar to win a title here. Darby showed everyone that he can break whatever glass ceiling “they” wanna put on them.

Sammy sat back and watched Darby become TNT Champion. Sammy told himself he’d do that, but better, and he did, three times. Darby smirks while Sammy continues. Darby won the TNT title, so Sammy won the TNT title. Darby jumped off something big, so Sammy jumped off something higher, and that’s been their back and forth competition. “But Darby, now it’s your turn to sit back and watch ME as I become the world heavyweight champion!” Fans boo, they were with Sammy until then. JB says that’s what is the real similarity between these two: it’s all about “me me me me me.”

But JB has a “spoiler alert” for them. JACK PERRY is next. But not for him! He’s doing it for every single person who has supported him since day one! But wait, here comes MJF! The AEW World Champion has them cut his music, and oh no! Does Pittsburgh not like him? Good thing he doesn’t care what they think, since they actually think Britt Baker is talented. Facts. But ladies, stop fighting over him, they’re making him blush! He of course means the other Pillars. But he knows they all want after the title, so he had a conversation with his good friend, Tony Khan. Everyone knows they’re friends.

And Tony had an idea that MJF actually agreed with. What they decided to do is that there will be a Pillars Tournament. The winner of that will face MJF for the Triple B at Double or Nothing! Now, the first round, one of these three gentlemen–and MJF uses that term very loosely here–gets a bye. Can we get a hat with some names in it? Thank you, very much. The first bye goes to… Ugh. Darby Allin. Darby’s pumped about that. Fine, whatever! Get out of here, with your p*be beard. Anyway, that means in round one, for the first time ever, it will be Sammy Guevara VS Jack Perry! And that match happens in the main event next- NOPE! TONIGHT!

“Good luck beating the ever loving sh*t tonight, because you both suck!” MJF has them hit his music now so he can leave, he doesn’t wanna look at these shmucks a second longer. Fans are fired up either way, who will come out THE #1 contender to take on the Devil of AEW?

 

The Outcasts VS Britt Baker & Jamie Hayter!

Ruby Soho, Toni Storm & Saraya have been stirring the pot and drawing battlelines, and none more so than with the Pillar & The Killer! But will there be a big L for the DMD and AEW Women’s World Champion? Or will the Outcasts lose big in #Brittsburgh?

The Outcasts rush Britt & Hayter at the ramp! Ruby is after Britt while Storm and Hayter brawl! Storm kicks the champ down but Britt CLUBS Ruby! The Steel City is thunderous for “DMD! DMD!” but Storm sends Hayter into railing! And SMACKS her off the apron! And then RAMS her into the apron! And then CHOPS her against it! Ruby CHOPS Britt against the apron while Storm puts Hayter in the ring. The bell rings, Hayter gets moving, she ducks ‘n’ dodges to run Storm over! Things keep moving, Hayter keeps running Storm over! Hayter waistlocks, ripcords, but Ruby CLUBS Hayter!

Fans boo but the Outcasts double whip Hayter to the ropes. Hayter busts through the double clothesline to DOUBLE LARIAT in return! Fans fire up and Hayter kisses the biceps. Hayter UPPERCUTS Ruby in a corner, runs corner to corner to ELBOW Storm! Then she comes back to elbow Ruby! Hayter sends Ruby into Storm, runs in and clotheslines them both! And then, DUOBLE SUPLEX! Fans fire up and Hayter kisses the bicep again. Hayter builds speed, but Saraya trips her up! Britt kicks at Saraya and Saraya goes running. Hayter gives chase, dodges Ruby, CHOPS her then ROCKS Saraya!

Storm jumps in, but Hayter catches her to send her into railing! Hayter then RAMS Storm into the apron, puts her back in the ring, and Hayter gets herself a Terrible Towel to rally everyone up! Fans fire up, Hayter kicks and CLUBS Storm, then brings her up. Saraya tells fans to shut up while Hayter runs. But Storm follows to ROCK Hayter at the ropes! Storm stomps and scrapes Hayter against the ropes, but lets off as the ref counts. Ruby SUPERKICKS Hayter, then Storm HIP ATTACKS her to the floor! Saraya talks trash, and Ruby kicks Hayter around. But Britt rushes over to SUPERKICK Ruby! PANAMA- NO, Storm boots her!

Ruby hits an STO to the floor! The Outcasts talk trash to the Baker family while AEW goes picture in picture.

Ruby and Saraya “kick rocks” at Britt while Storm brings Hayter around to that side. Storm CHOPS Hayter against the railing, then puts her back in the ring. Storm drags Hayter from the corner to tag in Ruby. Ruby stomps away on Hayter, CHOKES her against the ropes, but lets off as the ref counts. Storm gets her shots in while the ref argues with Ruby! Ruby brings Hayter up, ROCKS her with a forearm, but Hayter hits back! Hayter fires off forearms but Ruby claws eyes! Ruby throws Hayter by her hair! Ruby then facelocks Hayter, but Hayter powers up! Hayter makes her way towards her corner and reaches out!

Ruby keeps Hayter back long enough for Storm to trip Britt! The ref reprimands but Storm acts innocent. Ruby stomps away on Hayter, brings her back to bump off buckles, and she tags Storm. They both dig boots in on Hayter’s face! The ref reprimands, the Outcasts let off, but Britt storms in. The ref has her stay back, and that allows Storm and Ruby to stomp and fishhook Hayter! The Outcasts get away with all that, then Storm brings Hayter up for a snap suplex! Cover, TWO! Hayter hangs tough but Storm bumps her off buckles. Tag back to Ruby and she puts Hayter on ropes to CHOKE her!

The ref reprimands, Ruby lets off, but Saraya hops up to throw knee after knee after knee into Hayter! Britt and the fans protest but Saraya gets away with it. Ruby bumps Hayter off buckles, tags Storm in, and Storm digs her boot in. Storm lets off with a stomp, then some more stomps, and AEW returns to single picture. Fans rally for Hayter while Storm taunts Britt. Storm runs corner to corner, but Hayter catches her into a fireman’s carry! USHIGOROSHI! Hayter crawls, hot tag to Britt! Fans are thunderous as Britt CLOBBERS Storm, DECKS Ruby, then CLOBBERS Storm again! And again!

Britt gets around, redirects and SLINGBLADES Storm! Ruby returns, Britt dodges to SUPERKICK! Britt runs in, blocks the boots and puts Ruby in the ropes, DRAPING NECKBREAKER! Storm runs in, into a BUCKLE SHOT! Fans fire up with Britt and she spells it out, “D! M! D!” The glove is here, and she puts it on. Britt DECKS Ruby, but Storm gets around to GERMAN SUPLEX! And then STORM- NO, Britt powers up to AIR RAID CRASH! Cover, Ruby breaks it! Hayter gets Ruby and TOSSES her out! Fans fire up as Pillar & Killer ripcord and DOUBLE FOREARM SMASH! Then a feed to the HAYTE-BREAKER! Feed to the BUTTERFLY SUPLEX!

Hayter SLIDING LARIATS! Britt stacks, Ruby shoves Hayter onto the cover to break it! Then Ruby TOSSES Hayter out. Britt staggers up, runs in at Ruby but into an elbow! She tries again but gets DEADLY NIGHTSHADE! Storm gives Britt SWEET HIP MUSIC!! Ruby puts Britt in the ropes, and Saraya CLOBBERS Britt with the title belt!! STORM ZERO!! Cover, TWO!?!? Britt survives and shocks the Outcasts! Pittsburgh is thunderous but Storm tags Ruby. Storm then slides and trips Hayter up to RAM her into steel steps! And then she SHOTGUNS the arm into the steps! Ruby puts Britt up top to CHOP!

Ruby climbs up, Britt throws hands, and then Britt SUPER GOURD BUSTERS! Storm storms over but Britt BOOTS her! PANAMA SUNRISE!! Cover, TWO!?!? Now Ruby shocks everyone! Britt drags Ruby up, runs, CURB STOMP! Britt DECKS Storm, too, then covers, TWO!?!?! Ruby survives, but now she’s caught! RINGS OF SATURN!! And then, the LOCKJAW!!! Ruby taps, Britt & Hayter win!

Winners: Britt Baker & Jamie Hayter, by pinfall

The Outcasts tried all the tricks but it wasn’t enough! The homegrown stars won, but what is the status of Hayter given that attack on her arm? Will Storm, Saraya & Soho find a way to give the champ that L in the end?

 

Backstage interview with Wardlow.

Renee Paquette is with the Maestro of Mayhem, and says that the last time he faced Powerhouse Hobbs for the TNT Championship, QT Marshall was pretty effective at ringside. Does Wardlow have a different approach to tonight’s match in his hometown? He sure does. It wasn’t too long ago that Wardlow had a Horseman with him ringside. That man taught Wardlow about “evening the playing field.” So Wardlow reached out to another Horseman to do just that. And in walks Arn Anderson! Fans fire up for the Enforcer, and Arn wants to get this “laundry list” right.

They knocked the windows out of Wardlow’s car, took his cash, his credit cards, his passport and flung it aside. All kid’s stuff, until they took his title. Arn knows what that means, he’s been a champ all his life. Does Wardlow wanna do what Arn used to do? Do some of that Horseman stuff? Cuz that wakes people up. Arn says Tully was a smart man who taught Wardlow how to be the best checkers player in AEW. But Arn says tonight, get ready, because now they’re playing chess. Will Double A be just what Wardlow needs to get back on top?

 

The Elite is here!

Kenny Omega & The Young Bucks returned last week and almost took Jon Moxley’s eye, or worse, in an attempt at vengeance. Fans sing along with Carry On, but Kenny has it wrap so he can speak. “These past couple of weeks are maybe some of the most difficult in my life. BCC, you are four of the most respected professional wrestlers on the planet. That was until you made my friends bleed, you sent my uncle to the hospital, you sent my friends into ambulances with him. And I can’t lie, I’m having trouble sleeping at night. The same image is burned to the back of my brain. The image of seeing that screwdriver in the top turnbuckle.

“And the one thing that I wish I could change about that night is taking that screwdriver out of that turnbuckle… and plunging it into your face, Jon Moxley. So what we have tonight, it wasn’t a meet ‘n’ greet, it wasn’t a get-to-know-you with the fans. I don’t really have much to say. The purpose of us out here is an invitation. Blackpool Combat Club, I wanna see you guys in this ring, and I wanna settle it like men. Let’s squash the beef once and for all.” Fans fire up and The Elite wait. But on the tron is Bryan Danielson saying, “Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. Talk about amateurs! You guys have interview time, and you come out saying ‘I don’t have much to say?’

“Who’s gonna pay to see a monologue from a bunch of amateurs? Nobody pays to go see open mic night in a comedy club.” WAIT! This is a distraction so the rest of the BCC can attack from behind! Moxley CLOBBERS Omega while Yuta and Claudio hit the Bucks! Moxley CHOKES Omega with his jacket! But Nick gets in the ring to FLY out onto Claudio! Yuta and Matt brawl, and Matt SUPERKICKS! Nick SUPERKICKS Claudio into railing! Moxley and Omega brawl, the Bucks DOUBLE SUPERKICK Claudio over the railing! And then Nick FLIES out to hit Claudio again! Fans fire up as the fists fly!

Yuta has Matt, but Matt NORTHERN LIGHTS to the floor! And he starts up the POLAR EXPRESS! Another Northern Lights, and then another! Yuta goes writhing, and Omega has a chair! Omega JAMS Yuta, but Moxley gets a SLEEPER! Omega reaches out for stuff, but Claudio is back and he sends Nick into the railing! Yuta turns things back around on Matt! Omega RAMS Moxley into the apron, then TOSSES him over the railing! Claudio FLAPJACKS Nick off railing, Matt puts Yuta in the ring. Omega fires off on Moxley, and pulls his shirt over his head, hockey style! Matt aims at Yuta, but Yuta CLOBBERS Matt with the ROH World Championship!

Yuta CLUBS away on Matt’s bad arm! Nick hurries to CLOBBER Yuta! Nick rains down on Yuta but Claudio gut wrenches Nick to a POWERBBOMB!! Omega CLOBBERS Claudio! Omega KICKS Yuta! Omega GERMAN SUPLEXES Yuta! Moxley goes after Omega, Claudio helps mug him, and then Moxley hits a DEATH RIDER!! They stomp away, and Bryan comes out to say, “Exactly what I thought. Nothing but a bunch of amateurs. Except you, Kenny. You’re the one who I thought would be a professional. But maybe you’re not.” WAIT! Don Callis is here!? Don has a chair but Bryan asks what he’s even here.

Don decides to not go through with this and he drops the chair. Don runs off and Bryan says that’s right, run away. That’s the kind of person Kenny surrounds himself with. “Kenny is not an amateur. Kenny has more potential than anybody. But he’d rather just sit in the lobby of his own potential. And if that’s the case… He needs to be gone.” Bryan brings out his screwdriver!! Fans boo while Omega fights against the other BCC. But wait! Don returns, and is sending out Konosuke Takeshita? Yuta goes to intercept but Konosuke CLOBBERS him! Konosuke rushes in and he TOSSES Claudio! And he DECKS Moxley!

Konosuke stands between Bryan and Kenny! Fans fire up, but Yuta gets back in! Konosuke ROCKS Yuta, and Omega V-TRIGGERS! Konosuke gives Yuta a BLUE THUNDER BOMB! Moxley stands up, Omega and Konosuke clothesline Moxley right out! Don joins his golden boys and fans fire up! Don whispers something to Omega, and he raise both men’s hands. Is Konosuke now part of The Elite? Will he be the difference maker in this battle with the BCC?

 

AEW TNT Championship: “Powerhouse” Will Hobbs w/ QTV VS Wardlow w/ Arn Anderson!

These two titans have battled back and forth, but this could be their biggest battle yet. Will the Book of Hobbs continue to be written? Or will the Maestro of Mayhem use Hobbs to compose his Powerbomb Symphony’s magnum opus?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see who is the alpha male of AEW!

The bell rings and the two titans stare down. They approach, and then Wardlow RAMS Hobbs into the corner! Wardlow RAMS away again and again, but he lets off as the ref counts. Hobbs rushes up to clinch and BELLY2BELLY! Hobbs gets Wardlow again, another BELLY2BELLY! And then another! Fans boo but Hobbs and his team soak up the heat. But Wardlow POUNCES Hobbs out of the ring! Wardlow pursues, storms up, and he fires off forearms with Hobbs! Hobbs kicks low, whips Wardlow, but Wardlow reverses! Hobbs hits railing hard! And then Wardlow clotheslines him up and out!

Wardlow then hops the railing and fans fire up! They go around the back, and Wardlow CLUBS Hobbs to bleachers! The two brawl, Wardlow kicks low, and he brings Hobbs back the way they came. The brawling continues, Wardlow kicks and reels Hobbs in! Fans fire up, it could be starting! But Hobbs back drops Wardlow to ringside! Wardlow stands up to JAB and TOSS Hobbs! Hobbs staggers up, QTV gets out of the way, and AEW goes picture in picture.

Wardlow stalks Hobbs around the way, but Hobbs throws hands. Wardlow CLUBS Hobbs, Hobbs knees low! Hobbs ROCKS Wardlow, Wardlow hits back, but Hobbs sends Wardlow into railing. Hobbs talks trash, but Wardlow runs in! But Hobbs sends him into the steel steps! Harley Cameron laughs at Wardlow while he writhes. Hobbs drags Wardlow up, UPPERCUTS him, then follows him back around the way. Hobbs ROCKS Wardlow, grinds his face off the apron, then pushes him into the ring. Hobbs takes his time going up the steps, and then he goes up the corner! Hobbs FROG SPLASHES!! Cover, TWO!!

Wardlow survives being squashed by the flying Powerhouse, but Hobbs kicks him down. Hobbs looms over Wardlow while soaking up the heat, but Wardlow hits from below. Hobbs rains down fists! Hobbs lets off to get in the ref’s face, then goes back. Wardlow TACKLES Hobbs! Wardlow throws hands, Hobbs hits back, and then Hobbs CHOKES Wardlow! The ref reprimands, Hobbs lets off, but he stands on Wardlow at the ropes! The ref reprimands again, Hobbs lets off, but now QT gets his shots in! QT gets away with it and Wardlow sputters as he sits up. Hobbs stalks Wardlow, brings him up, and throws hands.

Hobbs puts Wardlow in a corner to KNEE low! AEW returns to single picture as Hobbs puts Wardlow up top. Hobbs throws hands, climbs up after him, and brings Wardlow up. Hobbs mocks the conducting but Hobbs hits back! Hobbs SUPER GOURD BUSTERS! Wardlow adjusts, and SWANTONS! Both men are down but fans fire up! Wardlow and Hobbs stir while fans lose their minds. Wardlow goes to  ropes, as does Hobbs. Both men stand, and Wardlow snarls! Wardlow throws hands, but Hobbs gives them back! Pittsburgh is on Wardlow’s side, but they start throwing LARIATS!

Wardlow clinches but Hobbs CLOBBERS Wardlow from all sides! Wardlow drops, Hobbs runs, but Wardlow pursues! Wardlow LARIATS and down goes Hobbs! Hobbs staggers up, into a GERMAN SUPLEX! And then another GERMAN SUPLEX! Fans fire up as Wardlow reels Hobbs in, suplexes, but Hobbs slips free! Hobbs scoops but Wardlow slips free! HEADBUTT!! Wardlow shakes it off, winds up and LARIATS!! Fans fire up as Wardlow says it’s time! But Harley gets on the apron. She waves at Wardlow but he just makes the pecs dance. Arn gets on the apron and he eyes Harley.

But QT gets in! DIAMOND CUTTER!! Hobbs picks Wardlow up, SPINEBUSTER! Cover, TWO!!! Wardlow survives and QT is furious! QT gets back in the ring to argue with the ref! But Arn steps in and fans are going nuts! QT says Arn don’t want none, but Arn says hold on. GET THE GLOCK! Arn’s finger guns cares QT off, into “CERO! MIEDO!” SUPERKICK!! QT staggers all the way into the Arn DDT!! Fans are thunderous as Arn drags QT out, but Hobbs rolls Wardlow up! TWO!! Wardlow pops Hobbs up?! POWERBOMB!! Hobbs staggers, Wardlow brings him around, another POWERBOMB!!

Fans are electric and Wardlow is feeling it! Wardlow conducts the Steel City Choir, and it is time for the THIRD POWERBOMB!! Cover, Wardlow wins!!

Winner: Wardlow, by pinfall (NEW AEW TNT Champion)

Arn helped Wardlow get payback on the Powerhouse, and even Penta got his! But wait! Christian Cage is here?! And of course, his Right Hand of Destruction, Luchasaurus, is with him! From a titan to a kaiju, Wardlow isn’t fretting it. Will there be a war of the monsters for this title?

 

Backstage interview with Sammy Guevara.

Renee asks Sammy about tonight’s main event match with JB. The winner is one step closer to facing MJF for the title, so how does Sammy feel about it? But before he can answer, MJF interrupts “Sammy G! The Spanish God! Arrrrriba!” Sammy stops MJF there. They’re not friends so what does he want? First off, harsh. Second, MJF feels he and Sammy got off on the wrong foot, all the way back to the Inner Circle days. MJF has always kinda liked Sammy. MJF doesn’t even mind that Sammy sticks his tongue out more than Gene Simmons on meth. But Sammy’s a great guy. What do you want, Max?! Get to the point!

Alright, well, MJF believes that he has an agreement that would behoove both of them. MJF heard what Sammy said. It tugged at MJF’s heartstrings when Sammy said he was sick and tired of seeing all the other Pillars be more successful than him and watching from the sidelines. Sammy’s words, not MJF’s. But here’s what MJF offers: a guaranteed spot in the main event of Double or Nothing for the AEW World Championship. All Sammy has to do is lie down. And there it is! Of course! Here’s what will actually happen: Sammy will beat Jungle Boy; then Sammy will beat Darby; then Sammy will beat MJF to become the champ.

MJF says Sammy’s a great guy, really. And a hell of a talent! MJF thinks Sammy’s better than… than… uh… Darby and JB combined! But let’s talk odds. The likelihood of Sammy not just beating one, not just beating two, but beating all three other Pillars, and one of them being a generational talent, those are shaky, slim-to-none odds. So again, MJF is offering Sammy a spot on the PPV that Sammy’s never been to, for the world title, the biggest prize of them all, and a blank check with Sammy’s name on it. Write any number you want, and MJF knows Sammy will be fair about that. Sammy writes, and shows it to MJF.

Oh, okay! Is this serious? Yes. Okay, deal. Max… Friends don’t shake hands. Friends hug. They hug, and MJF is happy. Is this deal really going to happen? Or is one “friend” scamming the other?

 

Jay White w/ Juice Robinson VS Komander!

The Switchblade was expelled from NJPW, but he is here in AEW to reestablish his era! Will King Switch cut a path through the roster all the way to gold? Or will the Catalyst get no reaction out of the luchador?

The bell rings and fans rally for White. “Too Sweet! WOOP WOOP!” White smiles and wants Komander to hear that. Komander nods, and offers a handshake. White shakes it and the two circle. They tie up, White puts Komander in a corner, and the ref counts. White lets off at 4, and he “apologizes.” White offers a handshake now and Komander takes it, only for White to kick low and CLUB Komander down! White stands Komander up to stomp away and talks trash at the same time! The ref counts, White lets off, and he drags Komander up by his mask. White CHOPS Komander down, and Shawn Spears is in the crowd, also wincing at that.

Juice talks some smack and White stands Komander up. White whips, Komander blocks but White whips him back to the corner. White runs in but into a boot! White comes back but Komander dodges. White ducks the roundhouse but not the HEEL KICK! Komander runs in to forearm smash! Komander CLUBS and stomps away on White, then climbs up to stomp him! The ref reprimands, Komander lets off, and Komander runs back in. White puts Komander on the apron, but Komander shoulders back in. Komander springboards up high, gets White’s arm and rebounds off ropes to tightrope walk!

Komander CHOPS White, goes up and around and just shows off for a second, before he FLYING RANAS! Fans are thunderous while White tumbles out of the ring! Komander shakes off the dizziness while White crawls to the ramp. Komander goes up the corner, but White hurries after him! Komander hops down, dodges the haymaker and GAMANGIRIS! White goes down, Komander aims and goes to the apron. Komander BOOTS White, then goes up the corner, to ARIHARA MOONSAULT! White dodges, Komander lands on his feet, but White kicks low to APRON GOURD BUSTER! Fans lose their minds while AEW goes picture in picture!

White and Juice Too Sweet, then White soaks up the cheers and jeers. White fetches Komander up and into the ring, covers, TWO! White is annoyed but he brings Komander up by his mask again. The ref reprimands but White TOSSES Komander out. White tries to distract the ref, but the ref is watching Juice too closely. The ref has Juice back off, so White goes out after Komander. White sees Spears and asks what he’s even doing here. Spears says it’s nothing, just focus on the match. White CHOPS Komander but he still watches Spears. Because Spears has a number card to rank that chop! He gives it a FOUR!

White is annoyed but Spears shrugs. White drags Komander back up, to CHOP again! Spears gives that one… a SIX! At least it went up. White puts Komander back in the ring, drags him up again, and scoops to SLAM! White glares at Spears and asks for a score. A NINE! White likes that, but then Spears realizes he made a mistake. He turns the 9 upside down, and it’s another 6! White is getting really annoyed now, and he drags Komander to a cover. TWO, so White tries again. TWO, and White clamps on a chinlock. White grinds Komander down, but Komander fights his way up. Fans rally, and Komander throws body shots!

White CLUBS Komander down! White puts Komander in a corner, talks trash, and then climbs up. AEW returns to single picture as White says he wants us to spell it out! “S! W! I! T! C! H! B! L! A! D! E!” And then a Hang Loose CHOP! Komander flounders but White drags him back up. White dares Komander to do something, and Komander CHOPS! White CHOPS Komander off his feet! White gets the fans fired up, and he stands Komander up to try again. Komander CHOPS, but White just grins. Komander KICKS! And KICKS! And CHOPS! And CHOPS! And SLAPS! And CHOPS! Komander fires off and fans fire up!

Komnader runs, handsprings and arm-drags to then roll White around, into the DRAGON’S LAIR! TWO!!! White CLOBBERS Komander! White is getting mad now and he drags Komander around. White clinches, but Komander fires off elbows! White CHOPS Komander in return! White has Komander in a corner, puts him up top, and slaps him around. White climbs up but Komander slips under to ENZIGURI! White flounders on the top rope, turns himself around, and Komander GAMANGIRIS! Komander climbs up now, and on top of White! Komander has the arm and he bends it back!

But White reaches up to thumb Komander’s eyes! The ref reprimands, but then Komander GAMANGIRIS White to the floor! Fans fire up as Komander goes to the corner. Tightrope walk, but White gets in! White dodges the leap, but Komander dodges the lariat to SUPERKICK! White falls back out and Komander tries again! Tightrope walk all twenty feet! SPRINGBOARD TOPE!! Komander puts White in the ring while fans are electric! Komander salutes, he goes back up, and Spears says this is a TEN! Tightrope SHOOTING STAR!! But he bounces off the cover! Komander crawls to get White, TWO!!

Komander goes up, SPRINGBOARD PHOENIX SPLASH!! Cover, TWO!?!? White survives and Komander can’t believe it! Komander puts White in a drop zone, goes up, “This is Awesome!” as he tries again. PHOENIX- NO, Komander has to bail out as White moves! White clinches, BLADE- NO, Komander slips free and hooks White up in an elevated Octopus! But White powers out to SNAP SLEEPER SUPLEX! And then he drags Komander up into the BLADERUNNER!! Cover, White wins!

Winner: Jay White, by pinfall

White snatches victory from the jaws of defeat! Spears says that was a five. But then Juice goes after Spears! They brawl at ringside but White joins in! Bullet Club Gold mugs Spears! They put him in the ring, but Spears TACKLES Juice! White attacks Spears, the mugging continues, but here comes RICKY STARKS! The Absolute slides in, dodges White and SPEARS Juice! White runs away! Fans fire up for Ricky as he stands tall with Komander and Shawn Spears! Will we see these absolute tens take down Jay & Juice?

 

Backstage interview with FTR.

Renee is with the AEW World Tag Team Champions, and says this was meant to be about their titles, but she wants them to know that Mark Briscoe is currently being tended to by medical staff. We have footage of earlier today, The Trustbusters/Varsity Athletes jumped Mark! FTR is furious and they hurry to go to medical. Mark already has Team Triple J checking in on him, and Jay Lethal says they’ve got this. FTR says they’re just as much Mark’s friends as Lethal is, but then Mark shouts down all the arguing! Mark wants them to listen. He’s ready to roll, who wants to go with him? They can take out Daivari’s guys right now!

But the doctor, FTR and Team Triple J all agree, that is not going to happen. Mark is in no shape after that. Mark is upset that he isn’t cleared, but FTR says they’ll handle it. Lethal & Jarrett say they’ll handle it, and the arguing continues. Mark has an idea. It should be FTR and Triple J. Lethal doesn’t wanna team with FTR! Aw c’mon, man! Fine. Jarrett says Triple J will lead the way, and Mark wants to have a front row seat. They better whoop some ass! Mark’s mutual friends agree to the terms, but FTR says they’re taking the lead. Will the Sussex County Chicken’s eclectic flock take out Daivari, Nese, Woods & Slim J?

 

Chris Jericho heads to the ring.

Pittsburgh sing Judas for The Ocho as he’s about to confront the Panama City Playboy! Will The Wizard keep things civil? Or does he have a fireball especially for Adam Cole Baybay? We find out, after the break.

Dynamite returns and Adam Cole makes his entrance! Fans fire up and join in on the “BOOM!” as Cole goes to the ring. Cole gets the mic and Jericho points out Pittsburgh loves Adam Cole. Cole says, “Chris Jericho. For anybody who’s followed my career, they know how much I studied and idolized you. I mean, a lot of the foundation of Adam Cole the pro-wrestler was inspired by Chris Jericho. For god sakes, my catchphrase was inspired by Chris Jericho. I remember being in high school and reading your first book, where you talked about traveling the globe and learning all these different styles of wrestling.

“And I remember saying, ‘Someday, I wanna be like Chris Jericho.’ Now, fast-forward, and here we are in Pittsburgh, Adam Cole and Chris Jericho in the ring for the first time ever. I think that’s pretty damn cool.” Fans cheer that, and Cole wants to start by saying he has a ton of respect for Jericho. Jericho offers Cole a handshake, and Cole takes it. Fans cheer the respect shown, and Jericho says, “Adam Cole, Baybay! I’m glad you said those words about me, those kind words, I appreciate that. I’ve been watching a lot of your stuff recently, and I’ve been thinking a lot about this, and I really wanna say, from the bottom of my heart, that I have… absolutely zero respect for you.”

Fans boo but Jericho says he thinks Cole is an arrogant SOB. The audacity Cole showed to interrupt Jericho’s celebration, giving his little buddy, Keith Lee, a handshake, that was unacceptable. It’s unacceptable for a talent as legendary as Chris Jericho, and Cole is lucky Jericho doesn’t slap his dumb face right here, right now! Cole says he was afraid Jericho was gonna go this route and say those things. Because Cole and a lot of fans in Pittsburgh here think that lately, Jericho’s been a real jagoff. Jericho’s eyes widen as fans echo “JAGOFF! JAGOFF!” Cole says seriously, how hypocritical can Jericho be?

Sure, Jericho surrounds himself with his minions, the JAS, who hang on every word he says and look at him like he’s a god. But speaking of looking, when was the last time Jericho looked himself in the mirror and asked, “Who is the real Chris Jericho? Is the real Chris Jericho an egomaniac who has the JAS win his matches for him? Or is the real Chris Jericho the GOAT? The Demo God? One of the absolute greatest to ever do this?” Do you know who Cole thinks is the real Chris Jericho? “The real Chris Jericho is an insecure, fickle, stupid idiot.” Fans chant “STUPID IDIOT!” and Cole smirks.

Cole tells Jericho not to forget that Jericho wanted to confront Cole, and Cole is right here. Cole doesn’t wanna play games. No more walking down the ramp, giving each other the side eye. Jericho wanted Cole’s attention, he’s got it, so now what? Cole steps closer and Jericho stares him down. Jericho says, “First of all… I am not a jagoff.” Fans disagree but Jericho says, “Second of all, you don’t impress me, Cole. So let me say this. You know how the old saying goes, ‘You never wanna meet your heroes or your idols.’ But in this case, the saying is 100% true. You don’t wanna meet me, you don’t wanna know me, you don’t wanna have anything to do with me.

“So if you’re smart, you’ll turn around and get the hell out of this ring, the ring that Jericho built, right here, right effin’ now!” Cole asks what Jericho’s gonna do about it. What’s he gonna do about it? What’s he gonna do about it?! This! Jericho shoves Cole, and the brawl is on! Fans fire up as Cole has Jericho in a corner and stomps away! But Daniel Garcia rushes out to go after Cole! Garcia stomps Cole, stomps away in the corner, and Jericho storms up to help him! They stomp away on Cole, dig their boots in, and then here comes BRITT! Britt slides in to pull Jericho away! Fans fire up as Britt gets in Jericho’s face!

Jericho tells Britt to back off, but Britt SLAPS him! But wait! The Outcasts return! They slither in and surround Britt! They mug Britt! Fans boo but the enemies of Cole and Britt have the better of them! Jericho CHOKES Cole, and Garcia has cuffs! They cuff Cole to the bottom rope! The Outcasts want Cole to watch as they beat up Britt! Fans boo but the JAS and Outcasts soak it all up. Garcia then hands Jericho a kendo stick! Cole says go ahead, hit him! He dares Jericho! Jericho winds up, but then he looks to Saraya. Jericho hands the kendo stick to Saraya, and Saraya SMACKS Britt! Cole says to stop this, but Saraya smacks Britt again!

And again! And again! Cole and Britt reach for each other but Saraya just fires off! Jericho says, “You see what happens?! You see what happens?!” Saraya almost breaks that kendo stick off on Britt! Jericho and Saraya hug it out, and they all stand tall. Fans call them all POS’s, but they don’t care. Cole apologizes to Britt, but Britt says it wasn’t his fault. Will the Undisputed Couple be able to get revenge on the sports entertainers?

 

#HardyParty speaks.

Matt says The Firm has been emailing him all day, trying to find out the date and time of their #FirmDeletion! Hardy’s turned the tables on them, because now the Hardy Party is in control. And if you wanna know when this goes down, keep your phones on and charged. Matt tells Jeff it is great to have him back, and Jeff says it is good to be back. And if you wanna know more about all of this, tune in for Saturday Night Rampage as Jeff addresses the AEW fans. “Be there, or be triangular!”

 

High Stakes Six Man Tag: The Acclaimed VS The Jericho Appreciation Society!

Max Caster, Anthony Bowens & Billy Gunn rejected the advances of the sports… enner-tay-ners… so they got jumped much like Cole & Britt just did. But now, they settle this in the Steel City, and Platinum Max has a rap! “Acclaimed on the mic, always done right. Dropping y’all quicker than stock for some Bud Light! Start countin’ ’em out! We’ll knock the taste of Jericho’s wiener out of your mouth! You get slayed all Spring, I’ma stomp you in the chest like Draymond Green! With no technical foul, they’ll have to wipe you up with the Terrible Towel.” Bowens gest the mic to say, “PITTSBUUUUURGH~! The Acclaimed-”

Oh no! The JAS jump the Acclaimed as soon as they’re in the ring! Will this score finally be settled one way or another?

Fans boo and the ref reprimands as Hager fires off on Billy, Parker rains hands on Caster and Menard drops knees on Bowens, all at the ropes! Parker kicks Caster out, Hager tosses Billy, but Caster and Billy drag them out in return! Billy sends Hager into railing! Caster ROCKS Parker! Bowens keeps Menard in and the bell rings to officially get this match going! Caster ROCKS Parker but Parker puts Caster in the ring. Bowens storms up on Parker and stomps away! Fans sing, “OH~ Scissor Me, Daddy!” Billy gets in, he and the boys beat up on Parker. Bowens tags Caster, they mug Parker, and then Caster scoop SLAMS!

Bowens goes up, Caster holds the legs open! Fans fire up for SCISSOR ME TIMBERS! Parker writhes but Billy gets back in, and they all SCISSOR FINGER~! Fans fire up as Caster drags Parker back. Caster brings Parker up but Parker throws hands as AEW goes picture in picture.

Parker ROCKS Caster, brings him around to whip, but Caster reverses to DROPKICK Parker! Menard runs in but Caster ROCKS him! But Hager CLOBBERS Caster! The ref reprimands but Parker drags Caster into the JAS corner. The ref keeps Billy & Bowens back while the JAS mug Caster! Tag to Hager, and he drags Caster up to DECK him! Hager stalks Caster, talks trash on him, then CHOKEs him on the ropes. The ref counts, Hager lets off and bumps Caster off buckles. Hager fires off body shots then a clothesline! Hager checks, Daddy Magic’s nipples are hard! Menard tags in and he runs to KNEE Caster down!

Menard brings Caster up, whips him to the corner hard, then tags in Parker. Parker mocks the scissor fingers before he scrapes laces off Caster’s face. Parker brings Caster around, snap suplexes, then covers. TWO, but Parker drops an elbow! And another! And another! Parker wraps Caster up in a chinlock but the fans rally up. Tag to Hager, the JAS mugs Caster. Hager brings Caster up, whips him corner to corner hard, and Caster bounces off buckles. Hager “apologizes” to the ref, then sucker punches Bowens! And then runs, to HAGER BOMB onto boots! Caster and Hager crawl while AEW returns to single picture!

Hot tags to Daddy Ass and Daddy Magic! Billy rallies on the JAS with big haymakers! Billy dodges Hager to UPPERCUT! Billy clotheslines Parker out of the ring! “SCISSOR IT!” Billy reels Hager in, says “SUCK IT!” and then FAM- NO! Hager slips out to SPINEBUSTER! Cover, TWO!! Both big men crawl now, hot tags to Bowens and Menard! Bowens fires forearms with Menard, but Menard knees low! Menard reels Bowens in, but Bowens resists the lift! Bowens wrenches out to ELBOW! JAB! CHOP! SUPERKICK! Fans fire up but Hager distracts the ref! Parker has his pocket comb, and he LOADED PUNCHES Bowens!!

Fans boo, Menard covers, TWO!?!? Bowens survives and Menard snarls. Menard tags Parker, Parker brings Bowens up and Hager holds him. Parker still has the comb in hand, swings, but Bowens ducks! Parker DECKS Hager!! Parker apologizes, but then he bumps into Billy! Billy takes the comb from Parker, and he BREAKS it! Parker is devastated! But then Bowens ROLLING ELBOWS Parker! Bowens slashes his throat, tags in Caster, and he gives Parker the ARRIVAL! Caster hits the MIC DROP! Cover, The Acclaimed win!

Winners: The Acclaimed, by pinfall (will NOT have to join the JAS)

Big win for the Acclaimed, and they are finally done with the sports… enner-tay-ners! But will Platinum, the Five Tool Player and Daddy Ass find their way back to some gold?

 

The Rampage card is set!

Airing on Saturday, we will have the AAA Mega Championship on the line as El Hijo del Vikingo defends against Dralistico! Will LFI not just be tranquilo but be golden? And then, as agreed upon earlier, the friends of Mark Briscoe are teaming up! It will be a massive 8 Man Tag as FTR & Triple J take on Mark Sterling’s stable of Slim J & The Varsity Athletes! Will Dax, Cash, Jarrett & Lethal #ManUp to get payback for Mark? And after defeating Anna Jay, Julia Hart is back in action against Kiera Hogan! Will the Hart of the House of Black continue her winning streak?

And speaking of winning streaks, we hear from Jade Cargill to address Taya Valkyrie’s challenge for the TBS Championship! That match happens next week on Dynamite, who will truly own the chicken wing facebuster? But perhaps biggest of all, Jon Moxley goes 1v1 with the Fallen Angel, Christopher Daniels! Will he have to worry about further retaliation from the Elite?

 

Young Pillars Tournament Round 1: “Jungle Boy” Jack Perry VS Sammy Guevara!

Tarzan Life collides with the Spanish God, but given that deal with the Devil of AEW, will this be nothing more than a formality? Or will Sammy still earn his spot at Double or Nothing?

Dynamite returns again as JB makes his entrance. The ref does his best to keep these two apart, but Sammy pie faces JB! The bell rings and JB SHOTGUNS Sammy out of the ring! Fans fire up, JB DIVES and sends Sammy into barriers! JB puts Sammy in, but Sammy builds speed to FLY! Direct hit and both men go down! Sammy says, “Who’s the man? I’m the man!” Sammy puts JB in the ring, and we see MJF watching backstage as JB builds speed again. JB FLYING RANAS Sammy to the floor! Fans fire up with JB and he drags Sammy back up. JB puts Sammy back in, climbs up a corner, but Sammy goes up right after him! SUPER SPANISH FLY!

Both men are down and fans are fired up! Darby watches from the rafters as a standing count begins. Both men stir, JB goes to a corner and Sammy goes to the opposite. They both drag themselves up at 5 of 10, and Sammy runs corner to corner. JB puts Sammy on the apron, ELBOWS him, then goes out to join him. JB SUNSET FLIPS, but Sammy holds the ropes! Sammy stomps but JB avoids them! JB grabs Sammy’s foot, Sammy pulls JB up to the apron! JB flips Sammy but Sammy lands on his feet! Fans cheer these two being evenly matched, and then fire up as they start throwing hands!

JB and Sammy are fast ‘n’ furious, but then JB SUPERKICKS! Sammy falls back, JB goes up the corner, and JB leaps, into a JUMP KNEE! Sammy looks to the floor, slashes his throat, and he brings JB up! SPANISH FLY to the floor!! Both men writhe while fans fire up, and Dynamite goes to picture in picture.

Sammy clutches a knee as he sits up and crawls away. JB stirs but Sammy slides into the ring. Sammy lets the ring count climb but JB crawls. MJF wants this to speed up, and Sammy does mat angels. JB drags himself into the ring before ten, so Sammy WRECKS him with a dropkick! Sammy goes out after JB and whips him hard into the railing! So hard that JB tumbles up and over! Sammy goes to fetch JB, and he stands on the railing to soak up the heat. Sammy then hops down, but JB CHOPS him! Sammy CHOPS back! JB CHOPS again! JB has Sammy sit on a fan’s lap and CHOPS him again!

But then Sammy has JB sit on someone’s lap, and CHOPS JB! Fans cheer as the two move along, and JB CHOPS Sammy in front of the bleachers! JB stalks Sammy to the railing, CLUBS him, then TOSSES him over. JB gets a sign from a fan, and it reads, “Major Jagoff Fraud.” JB spits on the picture of MJF, then SMACKS Sammy with it! Sammy staggers away, JB keeps after him, but Sammy RAMS him into the railing! Sammy puts JB in the ring, taunts the fans, and then gets back in the ring. Sammy rains down fists! Sammy clamps on a chinlock and digs his knee into JB’s back, but JB endures as fans rally up.

JB fights up, throws body shots, and AEW returns to single picture. Sammy throws JB down by his hair! MJF applauds, he likes that. “That’s my friend!” Sammy kicks JB around, has him in the corner, and he CHOPS! Sammy whips corner to corner, runs in, but JB elbows him! And ROLLING ELBOWS! And CHOPS! JB whips, Sammy reverses, but JB hits the COMEBACKER LARIAT! Fans fire up and Darby likes that. Darby gets the winner, he clearly wants them to soften each other up. JB whips, Sammy reverses again, but then JB puts Sammy on the apron to GAMANGIRI! JB goes back out there, to SUNSET FLIP ARPON BOMB!

Sammy ducks the Comebacker and gets around, to POISON-RANA in return!! JB staggers up, but he comes back, BLINDSIDER!! Both men are down again and Pittsburgh is thunderous! A standing count starts and even Darby can’t believe what he’s seeing. The count reaches 5 of 10, JB sits up and Sammy crawls his way over. Both men sit up at 8, and Sammy slaps. JB SLAPS! Sammy SLAPS! JB puts some stank on his SLAP!

They SLAP then throw forearms! Fans fire up as the shots go back and forth, and JB SUPERKICKS! Sammy JUMP- NO, JB catches the leg into the SNARE TRAP!!! Sammy endures, reaches out, crawls his way forward, ROPEBREAK! JB lets off quickly, then drags Sammy back up and around. JB puts Sammy up top as fans duel, “Let’s Go, Sammy! “SAMMY SUCKS!” JB puts Sammy in a Tree of Woe and he goes up the corner. But Sammy sits up to claw at JB! Sammy gets free of the Tree, then runs in to SHOTGUN JB to the timekeeper’s area!! JB crashes through the table!! The ring count starts and Sammy is fine with that!

JB is still down at 5 of 10, with Doc Sampson checking him. JB stirs at 7, sits up at 8, and is almost in, but Sammy distracts the ref?! Because MJF appears outta nowhere!! MJF DIAMOND RING DECKS JB!!! MJF runs away and Sammy reminds the ref he was at 8! The count is now 9, then TEN! Sammy wins!!

Winner: Sammy Guevara, by count-out (advances to the next round)

MJF celebrates with his “best friend,” who is more like his partner in crime! Darby is disappointed, but MJF lifts Sammy onto his shoulders because the Spanish God now faces the Relentless One! MJF lets Sammy down, but then Sammy picks up Triple B. MJF wants it back, so Sammy hands it over, and they hug it out. MJF bows to Sammy, but then Sammy bows to MJF. Will the Devil of AEW and the Spanish God be the ones going Double or Nothing? Or can Darby throw a wrench into their plans next week?


My Thoughts:

A great AEW, with great development for Double or Nothing. I thought we were getting a Triple Threat between the Pillars, or even a Round Robin, but I guess a single elimination tournament is fine because we just saw how it’s gonna play out. Great opening promo to get there to show that there’s heat between even the contenders. MJF and Sammy made a deal, and after a pretty awesome main event, MJF helps screw Jungle Boy over and now we’re getting Sammy VS Darby next week. But those two were so effusive in that celebration, you know this is gonna blow up in someone’s face. Either Darby still wins, or Sammy turns on MJF at the very last moment and they actually fight it out in their match. In the end, though, it still feels like MJF is gonna retain at the PPV.

Really good stuff out of The Outcasts and the AEW Homegrown talent. That tag match was great stuff, and of course Britt is powered up in her hometown. Really good promo from Jericho and Cole, and good attack from Garcia and the Outcasts to beat Cole and Britt down. Now, they made sure to have a detail that kept Hayter out with that bad arm so she couldn’t make the save. But where was Keith Lee on this? Granted, AEW also follows the rule of no male VS female contact, so Keith couldn’t fight the Outcasts off, but he could fend them off. Maybe Cole will bring this up next week. At the same time, Keith’s got Swerve still after him, maybe that is his kayfabe reason for being absent.

Great stuff out of White and Komander, and even Spears bring ringside to troll White with his Perfect Ten score cards was great. Great save by Ricky Starks, too, and with Action Andretti busy helping Darius Martin in ROH, I guess Starks & Spears are gonna be the team going against Bullet Club Gold. Which is great because Spears needs a story to keep his return going, and this isn’t the worst thing to do. Fans still love the Perfect Ten gimmick, he can build momentum in this feud and come out the other side ready for at least a midcard title. Though I thought that with Ricky Starks after the JAS, so who knows.

Speaking of the JAS, really good Six Man Tag, and they kinda threw that stipulation update in with commentary. But either way, I figured the Acclaimed would win. They’re moving on from the JAS, they might even go after the Trios titles with Billy still looking good. Good promo from FTR, Mark Briscoe and Triple J, though the audio wasn’t consistent so it made things rather hectic. To be honest, commentary’s audio was off quite a bit in the first hour, so no question this was all live. But I like the idea of how, now that Mark has been dragged into Triple J, his friends are dragged into working together. It’s very out of the box “can they coexist?” thinking.

Great TNT Championship match, and I like that Arn and Penta countered QT being ringside. Wardlow wins big in his hometown, I hope Hobbs kicks QTV to the curb and then finds a way to bide his time before going after another belt. Great stuff from The Elite and the BCC, and also good continuity. Don didn’t get Hangman, he got Konosuke, because Don’s been trying to court Konosuke to the stable. Konosuke and The Elite are still great as a combo but this has to be a bit of a swerve. Surely something happens to Konosuke and Hangman is the only one The Elite can call upon to fight the BCC in their 4v4 match.

My Score: 8.7/10

8 Man Tag: The Blackpool Combat Club VS Rocky Romero, Lio Rush & TMDK!

Jon Moxley is still IWGP World Heavyweight Champion, Wheeler Yuta is still ROH Pure Champion, and both Bryan Danielson & Claudio Castagnoli are still bad, bad men! The BCC is looking to still be the baddest group around, but will they be rolling on towards Forbidden Door?

Winners: Blackpool Combat Club, by pinfall

The BCC defend homefield in AEW, and we’re just two weeks away from Forbidden Door! Moxley then gets the mic to say, “Tetsuya Naito of NJPW is a survivor, but The Forbidden Door is the final conflict. This is it. This is your last chance. I’m not coming to beat you,  Naito. I’m not coming to defend the IWGP Championship. I’m coming to Forbidden Door to put an end to Tetsuya Naito once and for all! Naito, I’m coning to Forbidden Door to finish you, to finish your career, to put you in a pine box, to put you in the ground, and to BURY your ass once and for all!!” A powerful ultimatum with still two weeks to go, will the Maniac also be the man that retires Naito?

 

Tony Schiavone is in the ring.

Youngstown, Ohio, please welcome The Acclaimed & Billy Gunn! The fans fire up as Max Caster, Anthony Bowens & Daddy Ass make their way to the ring. Schiavone lets Caster have the mic, and he says usually the Acclaimed comes out here with a rap, some punchlines, but tonight, if you didn’t see, but the “love” EVPs, the Young F’s…! Well, those guys issued a $5 THOUSAND FINE on them for disparaging company executives!? There was a tweet about it! Seems these EVPs are outta touch with the fans! Youngstown confirms!

Caster says the fans don’t want a couple of women’s business suit wearing a-holes! They want Platinum Max roasting everyone! They want Bowens & Billy hitting the scissor fingers, and you bet they want The Acclaimed to become the NEW AEW World Tag team Champions! And if Bowens was The Bucks, he wouldn’t focus the pettiness on raps and tweets, but on the fact that they will be face to face with The Acclaimed for the first time in four years. And this isn’t the same team they faced before in 2020. They are not an upstart! They have the same exact accolades as The Bucks do! Scissor King, Platinum Max, FORMER AEW World Tag Team Champions, FORMER AEW World Trios Champions, the WINNINGEST team in the history of AEW!!

And all they have to get the titles back is beat The Bucks twice. So do your worst! FINE them, but all they want is to get those titles back, get this company back, and prove that EVERYONE loves The Acclaimed! In fact, forget fines! Take those fines, stick ’em up your virgin asses, because everyone here is gonna kick it old school for you! YO! YO! YO! LISTEN~! But then someone says NOOOO~! And it’s Brandon Cutler! He tells The Acclaimed to listen! This one year anniversary of Collision is to be a night of praise for the EVPs! They’ve carried this show since day one! But these limp noodles use their public platform to disparage!

So if they want a fine? FINE! Here’s a $10 THOUSAND fine! Then it’ll be $15- Christopher Daniels comes out here to stop Cutler. The Acclaimed had Daniels’ back, so here’s some good news. Tony Khan has REVERSED the fines, they get their money back! And Cutler, we don’t need to hear any more from you. But Cutler shows his clipboard to Daniels. Daniels SMACKS Cutler with the clipboard! Then DECKS him with his fist! Daniels TOSSES Cutler in for The Acclaimed to handle! They trip him up, hold him open, and Bowens goes up to say, SCISSOR ME TIMBERS~! Cutler crawls away in shame, but will The Bucks make sure The Acclaimed pay for that on Wednesday?

 

No Disqualifications: Thunder Rosa VS Deonna Purrazzo!

La Mera Mera tried to be an ally to The Virtuosa against their common enemy, but the only thing they had in common was that they wanted to be the one to take down Toni Storm. That made them into enemies, and it has escalated to this! With nothing holding these two back, who stops at nothing to make sure the other regrets ever showing up in AEW?

Deonna doesn’t wait, she attacks while Rosa’s on the corner! The bell rings and Deonna puts Rosa in the Tree of Woe. Deonna runs in, but Rosa sits up! Deonna slides out of the ring, and Rosa CROSSBODIES down onto her! Rosa fires off hands, then POSTS Deonna! The fans rally behind Rosa and she CHOPS Deonna against the apron. Rosa SMACKS Deonna off the steel steps, then off them again, and then again! Rosa stands on Deonna, Deonna pushes her away, and Rosa starts bringing out stuff from under the ring!

Rosa falls back, clutching the elbow! Deonna snarls, goes looking under the ring, and she brings out a kendo stick! Deonna throws that all the way over the ring, but she gets some chairs. Deonna wedges a chair in a corner, then gets Rosa up. Rosa reverses the whip but Deonna stops herself! Deonna kicks and whips, but Rosa stops. Rosa ELBOWS Deonna, fireman’s carries, then DEATH VALLEY DRIVERS! Cover, TWO! Deonna stays in this but Rosa goes looking for more!

Rosa brings out a TABLE! Youngstown cheers as Rosa gets that big thing up, only for Deonna to DROPKICK it into her! The fans boo but Deonna soaks up the heat, and Collision goes picture in picture.

Deonna drags the table up for herself, and she puts that in the ring. Deonna drags Rosa up, wrenches, then kicks Rosa. Deonna hammerlocks an arm before she POSTS Rosa! And then she hammerlocks and POSTS Rosa again! Rosa clutches the side of her face, but there’s no blood, yet. Deonna gets Rosa in the ring, then drags her over to snapmare by the table. Deonna steps over Rosa to trap the arms, then turns her over so she can dribble Rosa’s head onto the wood! Deonna lets off and Rosa flops over. Cover, TWO! Rosa is tougher than that but Deonna keeps her cool as Collision goes to break.

The fans cheer as Rosa stomps away on Deonna! Deonna sits down, Rosa grabs the table and she brings that around. The fans cheer as it’s finally set up!

Rosa SMACKS the can with the chain! Then Rosa finishes setting the table up, to use it as a ramp! FLYING SHOTGUN into the trash can!! The fans are thunderous for that unique use of a table, and then Rosa covers Deonna, TWO!?!? Deonna survives the savage innovation, but Rosa won’t give up just yet. Rosa completely stands the table up now, but Deonna has a chair! She slide sit at Rosa, the table falls over, but Rosa JAMS Deonna up with it! Rosa reels Deonna in, underhooks, but Deonna fights the package to wrench out! Deonna reels Rosa in, for a KNEELING PILEDRIVER! Cover, TWO!!! Rosa lives and Deonna is stunned!

Deonna clamps onto the arm, FUJIWARA! Rosa reaches out, but ends up in the VENUS DE MILO!!! Rosa reaches with her legs, but Deonna HAMMERS away on her head! Deonna rolls past Rosa to then look around on the outside. She LOW BLOWS a staff member!? Just to CLOBBER Rosa with his camera!!! Deonna shows no mercy to anyone, and she puts Rosa in the ropes! MOTORCYCLE STRETCH IN THE ROPES! Rosa’s out cold, Deonna wins!!

Winner: Deonna Purrazzo, by referee stoppage

That camera shot might as well have been a knockout! But Deonna still gets the win either way. Is Deonna going to move on from Rosa once and for all to then go after a title? Or will Rosa’s revenge not die with one loss?

 

Hechicero w/ The Gates of Agony VS Dalton Castle

Now this is a unique match-up! The Alchemist of Lucha is taking on The Peacock, and… wait are those The Outrunners being Castle’s substitute Boys? Well, uh, Turbo & Truth aside, will Castle be too hot to handle even for the man that summons fire? Or will Hechicero turn this Forbidden Door appetizer into sweet, sweet victory?

The bell rings and the fans fire up as these two get face to face. Hechi shoves Castle, Castle gets serious. They feel things out, tie up, and Hechi facelocks. Castle still powers Hechi to ropes, the ref calls the break, and the two let off clean. Castle gets fired up and eggs Hechi on. Hechi CHOPS, so Castle UPPERCUTS!

But then Hechi beats up on Castle, puts him in a corner, and Liona HIP ATTACKS! Kaun METEORAS! The fans boo, but The Outrunners run in! Only to get CLOBBERED by The Gates… Hechi then feeds Castle to the Gates for the LARIAT SANDWICH! And they CLOSE- NO! Daniel Garcia hurries out here, with a chair! He and Daddy Magic have Castle’s back as they run off Hechi & The Gates! Will even The Alchemist of Lucha fear Red Death?

 

Backstage interview with Dante Martin.

Arkady Aura is with Angel Dorado, as well as his teammates, Darius Martin & Action Andretti. She brings up Dante facing Lee Moriarty in the TNT Championship qualifier. However, everyone else is banned from ringside. Dante says that’s fine, because Top Flight is about friendly competition. He remembers a time when Lee Moriarty was once about that. Darius asks if Dante is running. He’s not. Is he scared? He’s not. Because this is one of the best high-fliers today! High-flying and redeye-ing! Action promises that at Forbidden Door, Dante will be the NEW TNT Champion! But in steps Lio Rush. He says what’s up, long time no see. Good to see he has some new friends.

Not sure if any of them knew this or not, but Lio and Action go way back. That’s true. So as far as Darius, nice to finally meet you. Darius knows who Lio is, and won’t shake his hand. Okay, that’s fine. Just wanted to wish Dante luck tonight. Maybe see them around. Lio heads out, Action says yeah, great seeing him again. Top Flight heads out, but will Dante book him and the boys some golden tickets to Long Island? Or will #TAIGASTYLE make sure Shane Taylor Promotions takes over New York?

 

The Patriarchy is in the ring.

And “Mother” Shayna Wayne asks for everyone’s attention. They boo her? They boo a mother?! How dare you! Shayna demands they all get on their feet right now and pay respect to “the greatest father to ever live,” THEIR Patriarch, Christian Cage. And with that, Captain Charisma makes his way out here. Christian takes the mic and sits in the fancy chair they have for him. “Well, I didn’t exactly have ‘spending the most important holiday of the year’ in The Rust Belt, but here we are.” The fans boo but Christian says Youngstown needs to sit down and shut their mouths while he conducts his business.

Now, he’d be remised if he didn’t acknowledge what today is. Today is the anniversary of his son, Nick Wayne’s biological father passing away. Christian says that can affect a child many different ways. You might wonder why the universe can be so cool. But in a strange way, Nick’s father dying was the best thing that could’ve ever happened to him, because it led him to Christian Cage. The fans boo but Christian says this veiled picture must of course be a gift for him. Did Nick commission this? Nick even has a card! Christian opens it up, and it says Happy Father’s Day. A homemade card from the heart? Should he read it?

“To Dad, You are the greatest TNT Champion in history,m and I can only dream of having half your tlanet, but I will keep striving to prove my worth. Love, Nick.” How thoughtful, Christian appreciates that. And uh, can we unveil the portrait now? Of course! The curtain is taken away, and it’s a failry impressive painting. Did Luchasaurus do this himself? Wow. Then uh, this is… Okay. But Nick’s card is unbelievable! He’s a wordsmith! It’s popping off the paeg! Christian has never been prouder, he will cherish this forever. And uh, Killswitch- The fans chant “LUCHASAURUS!” but he says shut up, he’s Killswitch! Killswitch, why can’t you be more like Nick?

Luchasaurus storms off! The fans cheer but Christian says he wasn’t excused! Get back in line! Christian has something important to say and everyone will want to hear this. Luchasaurus reluctantly stands back by the chair, and Christian says that’s a good looking guy in the picture either way. Now, it is no secret that Double Or Nothing was a couple weeks ago. And Christian clearly fell short in his quest to become AEW World Champion. But what you might not realize is that there is alternate footage clearly showing his shoulder was up! The EVPs want to do the right thing and show this footage, but he politely asked not to show it.

This family does not make excuses here! They just roll up their sleeves and get back to work! Christian vows to one day be World Champion, and that path starts with winning the Trios Championships! That’s right! Christian’s gift to his “sons” is that they will hold titles together. The fans still chant for Luchasaurus but Christian tells them to shut up! Now yes, it is uncommon for the father to give a gift to his children on Father’s Day, but that is what a good father would do. He would give anything to make his children smile. Hey, even Tony Khan’s dad gave him millions upon millions of dollars to start this company!

But here’s the thing, Tony Khan, this very instant, Christian Cage says this is HIS company! He is the greatest, most talked about and influential star in this sport! He will win every accolade until he goes down as THE greatest in history! So Tony, Christian is your father now. They are The Patriarchy, the next Trios Champions, the Faces of TNT, now and forever! Captain Charisma has spoken, but will his declaration become reality?

 

The Bang Bang Gang speaks.

Juice Robinson says it is the one-year anniversary of Collision, and they are the Collision Cowboys, the men who built this brick by brick! Juice broke his back carrying this place! Colten says that as such, they hold a lot of gold. There are a lot of teams gunning for them, but they can’t handle the pressure. House of Black tonight, and now The Patriarchy wants a shot? Yeah, it’s Father’s Day, but you don’t get special privilege. Get in line! Austin adds that House of Black, they’re not sure what’s going on, maybe they’ve been in the dark too long, but open your eyes, dilate the pupils, and uh, notice that Jay White isn’t here.

Tonight is NOT for the titles, but tonight is about proving whether or not if you can hang with the OGs! And if you’re not down with that, they’ve got two words for ya: GUNS UP!

 

TNT Championship Ladder Match Qualifier: Lee Moriarty VS Dante Martin!

As we heard from Dante, these two used to be friends, but ambition seems to have given #TAIGASTYLE a bit of a salty edge. Will Lee use that edge to clip Angel Dorado’s wings? Or will Dante prove that he not only does things the right way, but can win at the same time?

The bell rings, the fans rally as the two circle, and then Lee goes for a leg. Dante steps over, trips Lee, then speeds up. Lee drops, hurdles, but Dante stops to hurdle and drop.

Then he schoolboys Ogogo to SPIN KICK!

Shane whips Lio but Lio stops himself at the ropes! Lio eggs Shane on, then DUMPS him out! Lee runs up but Lio TOSSES Him out, and HANDSPRING KICKS Lee into Shane! Lio stands tall with Top Flight, and refs hurry out to stop this from getting any wilder. Will Shane Taylor make sure Lio meets his final hour soon enough? As for Dante and Top Flight, they nod respect to Lio, but still no handshakes. Will Lio just have to give them all time to trust him?

 

Hikaru Shida speaks.

“I have been in AEW since day one. I am a three-time world champion. I am the longest reigning AEW Women’s World Champion. And I am officially entering the Owen Hart Foundation Tournament. That tournament needs me. And Wembley Stadium needs me! And the Shining Samurai will go to Wembley Stadium to once again become Women’s Champion.” Will Shida shine all the way through the Summer to then go All In on an incredible fourth Women’s World Championship reign?

We heard from Rock Hard Juice Robinson, Fully Cocked Colten, and… Austin earlier tonight, but now is time to put up or shut up! Malakai, Brody & Buddy have been World Trios Champions before, but will they get one step closer to becoming Unified AEW & ROH World Trios Champions?

Winners: The House of Black, by pinfall

The Bastard told The Bang Bang Gang that he was not going to let what they did to Death Triangle slide! The House still gets the win, even with Buddy going down with a bad knee. But then The Patriarchy has to come in via the tron to ruin all the fun. Christian Cage says congratulations to The House. Congratulations on becoming the #1 contenders to the World Trios Championships. The only problem is, they’re not a trio anymore. The Patriarchy reveals they took out Buddy!! The Patriarchy leaves Buddy down and out, right as Malakai & Brody rush to the back! Will Christian Cage stoop to new lows just so he and his “sons” can rise up the ranks?


My Thoughts:

A great Collision for the anniversary episode, and I appreciate it was more rock, less talk. The only real talky stuff was everything Christian Cage did, but even that wasn’t so bad because he didn’t take forever getting to the point. He takes credit for all the good Collision content, heavily favors Nick Wayne over Killswitchasaurus, and then tries to hide his failure at Double Or Nothing by going for the trios titles, which he can totally just use Nick and Luchasaurus to win for him when the time comes. Really good promo from Bang Bang Gang in response, and great main event between Bang Bang Gang and House of Black.

If Buddy isn’t actually hurt, he was doing amazing acting tonight. And with how Christian “attacked” Buddy, it seems the story is the same either way: The House will need a new third man to challenge Jay White & The Gunns. Pac showed up to stick it to the Bang Bang Gang, so maybe The Bastard becomes an honorary member of The House of Black just to take the titles. And honestly, what better feud than Christian “Greatest Father Ever” Cage and “The Bastard” Pac, with how “bastard” also has the old definition of “a fatherless child.” And honestly, when is Luchasaurus going to break away from Christian? Should happen during the trios title match.

Really good 8 Man Tag, but I should’ve figured BCC would win, and that Moxley would again tell Naito that he’s done after Forbidden Door. It’s the same thing he’s been saying all week since Dominion last Sunday, he’ll probably keep saying it for those who weren’t paying attention, and I am starting to think that’s just because he’s going to lose in Long Island so Naito can have finish his last run with the world title. And good integration as Lio says hey to Dante before Dante has his match with Lee. Great win for Dante, and I figured he would because you need a true high-flyer in a ladder match. Lio helping fight off Shane Taylor Promotions is also interesting, can’t wait to see which way this splits. Could someone be leaving Top Flight to join STP?

Kyle VS Henry was a strange filler-not-filler, because at least we got the news of an 8 Man Tag happening for Dynamite. It’ll be a great match, with some Forbidden Door build involved as Cassidy will be facing Zack Sabre Jr. and now we’ll be seeing Mark Briscoe, Dante Martin, and Konosuke Takeshita in the ladder match. With that, feels like one of the Kyles takes a loss. Either Roddy purposefully costs O’Reilly or accidentally costs Fletcher. I’m thinking the former so that Roddy can insist O’Reilly still needs him to be relevant. Then they can take that feud through the Summer, maybe even into the Men’s Owen Hart Cup.

Really good promo from Shida, and she’ll be a great part of the Women’s Owen Hart Cup. Probably won’t win it, though, with the potential story of Mariah May challenging Toni Storm, or with Willow looking to go back-to-back. Very good match from Hechicero VS Dalton Castle, and it was a rather clever move that The Outrunners were the pseudo-boys that failed to save Castle while Garcia & Menard succeeded. Add Angelo Parker to that and you’ve got an 8 Man Tag right there of Garcia, Menard, Parker & Castle VS Hechicero & The Cage of Agony. Very good No DQ match from Deonna VS Rosa, but as I said earlier in the week, I figured Deonna would win. She’s a Heel, the current champions are Faces, she will make a good challenger to maybe the TBS Championship for All In.

And a great promo from The Acclaimed to call out The Bucks for their continued abuses of power. Cutler being the scrub that takes beatings on behalf of The EVPs is a pretty silly recurring gag, but Daniels getting in on the fun was good stuff. The Acclaimed surely do find a way to win the Title Eliminator in order to force a title match that The Bucks probably cheat to win. This probably still leads to Acclaimed helping Swerve for Blood & Guts, as I sensed on Wednesday.

My Score: 8.8/10

Toni Storm w/ Mariah May & Luther VS Alex Windsor!

The Leading Lady knows her beloved, budding protege’s past partner is coming for her prized possession, but she is looking to send a message tonight. Will Mina Shirakawa hear that message loud and clear? Or will Titanium Alex be nobody’s tune-up?

Speaking of, Alex doesn’t even wait for the bell, she goes after Toni the moment she’s in a corner! The fans boo but the bell rings and the ref reprimands. Alex fires off haymakers on Storm, then bumps her off buckles. Windsor soaks up the heat, whips Storm back in, then runs up to CHOP! Windsor soaks up more heat, then runs back in, but into a THESZ PRESS! Storm rains down fast hands, then fires up! The fans are with her and Storm gives Windsor a point-blank HIP ATTACK! And then another! And then another! Storm winds up, the fans fire up, and BOOM, another hip attack! Windsor tumbles out while the fans cheer.

Storm runs side to side to HIP ATTACK Windsor off the apron! Storm calls Mariah over, nuzzles her, then goes after Windsor. Storm CLUBS Windsor, drags her up, then reels her in. Windsor fights the suplex, throws body shots, and then swings, but Storm DECKS her first! Storm goes to the ring but Windsor gets her for a wheelbarrow! Windsor SMASHES Storm off the apron! Windsor KICKS Storm, gets her back up, and hits an APRON BACK SUPLEX! Storm flounders, Mariah is concerned but Windsor gets in her way. Windsor CLUBS Storm, HAMMERS away, then soaks up the heat. Windsor slides into the ring and Mariah checks on Storm.

Windsor taunts Storm, then goes back out to fetch her. But now Luther stands in Windsor’s way to keep her from getting at Mariah. Windsor drags Storm up, whips her, and POSTS her! Storm staggers around, Windsor runs up to CLUB her again, then throws body shots! Windsor CLUBS Storm, soaks up more heat, but Storm RAMS Windsor into barriers! The fans fire up as Storm rolls into the ring. The fans rally as Windsor drags Storm to a corner, to SLAM the legs into the post! And again! And again! And again! The ref reprimands, but Windsor YANKS Storm out to CLUB her down. Windsor rolls into the ring while fans rally behind Storm.

Luther & Mariah check on Storm, but Windsor goes out again. Luther says to stay back, but Windsor SHOVES Luther into Mariah, which sends Mariah into Storm! The fans boo but Windsor stomps away on Storm, and Rampage goes picture in picture.

Windsor drags Storm up and ROCKS her with a forearm! Storm sputters and staggers around the way, but Windsor stalks after her. Windsor has Storm against barriers to CLAW the eyes! Windsor puts Storm in the ring, drags her to a cover, TWO! Storm is tougher than that, and Mariah scowls at Windsor. Windsor fires forearms on Storm, ROCKS her, then whips Storm to ropes to run her over! Cover, TWO! Windsor grows frustrated but she drags Storm up for a cravat. Storm endures the neck wrench, but Windsor throws in knee after knee!  Storm throws body shots but Windsor whips her to a corner.

Windsor runs in but Storm dodges! Rampage returns to single picture as Storm blocks boots, puts Windsor in ropes and hits a DRAPING BACKSTABBER! Windsor writhes, Storm goes to the far end, and the fans fire up for the close up! Storm runs in to SWEET HIP MUSIC! And then the fisherman SUPLEX! Bridging cover, TWO! Not quite perfect but Storm storms around. She drags Windsor up and reels her in, but Windsor wrenches out to HEADBUTT! Storm HEADBUTTS back! Storm runs, but Windsor clothesline at ropes! And again! And then a RIGHT ANGLE SLAM! Cover, TWO! Storm survives and the fans rally up!

Windsor drags Storm up but Storm drags her into a cradle! TWO, SHINING WINDSOR! Cover, TWO!! The fans rally for Storm again but Windsor snarls. Windsor storms up on Storm, drags her up, short arm- NO, Storm dodges the lariat, runs, and smothers the pop-up to STORM ZERO!! Cover, Storm wins!

Winner: Toni Storm, by pinfall

Storm breaks through Iron Will Windsor, and revels in the praise of her adoring public. She also holds Mariah close, but will she still have both once she passes through The Forbidden Door? Or will the Fighting Gravure Idol steal more than just the spotlight?

 

Backstage interview with Harley Cameron.

Arkady Aura is with The Outcasts’ crazier component, and says she’s a bit surprised to see Harley without Saraya, considering the big win last week. Yeah, yeah, who cares? Saraya is not here as a form of protest! All these women are all declaring for the Women’s Owen Hart Tournament. Oh~, declaring~! What are we? Royal subjects? Oh, a royal decree from the king! Or maybe we’re more old Southern women, “Oh, I do declare!” The only one who should be declaring anything is Saraya. Because the winner gets a world title shot at All In. And who was it that won last year at Wembley Stadium? Saraya! What a declaration!

And with that said, Saraya’s done it before, and she will do it again. And now Harley declares this interview over, goodbye. Then from Harley’s mouth to the world’s ears, will Saraya make sure she is the one crowned the 2024 Queen of Harts before crowning herself champion once again?

 

AEW hears from Thunder Rosa and Deonna Purrazzo.

La Mera Mera tells “Deonna, you might’ve been a little bit busy, but there were some flashing news. Saturday is the one-year anniversary of Collision. And as a tradition, Thunder Rosa always likes to pick a fight. And who else than you?” But The Virtuosa asks back, what does Rosa not understand here? Rosa’s selfishness has forced Deonna to embrace her own. But La Mera Mera isn’t owed anything. From where Deonna comes from, those who want respect must show respect. And those who refuse get respect beaten into them. Saturday Night Collision, Rosa VS Deonna, NO DISQUALIFICATIONS! And Deonna asks what Rosa thinks happens when her head collides with a chair.

Rosa says nothing will stop her from showing Deonna the real respect of a warrior. No disqualifications, no problems. Happy Anniversary, Collision! But who will celebrate by standing over the other’s battered body?

 

Six Man Tag: The Cage of Agony VS Solomon Tupu, Jay Marston & Kevin Gutierrez!

Brian Cage, Bishop Kaun & Toa Liona have broken away from Swerve’s House to do things their way. So far, so good, for them. But will their opponents wish it’d been another three sent into The Cage of Agony?

The trios sort out, Tupu starts against Kaun, and the two circle. Liona distracts Tupu and Kaun DROPKICKS Tupu into the corner! Kaun CHOPS, then fires off forearms! The ref counts, Kaun bumps Tupu off buckles to then fire off more forearms. Kaun CHOPS, the ref has him back off, and Kaun runs in. Tupu goes up and over, keeps moving, and Gutierrez tags in. Kaun CLOBBERS Tupu but Gutierrez kicks low! Gutierrez whips but Kaun reverses. Gutierrez ducks ‘n’ dodges, but Liona sneaks a tag. Gutierrez hurdles but turns around into a BOOT! Liona CLOBBERS Gutierrez! Liona looms over Gutierrez, drags him up, then BODY SHOTS!

Liona BODY SHOTS again, and again! Gutierrez falls, but Liona drags him up again, to LARIAT! The fans rally as Liona drags Gutierrez over and tags in The Machine. Gutierrez fires haymakers on Liona, but they do nothing! Liona SPINEBUSTERS Gutierrez! Cage smirks, Marston tags in, and Marston ducks ‘n’ dodges, but runs into a BIG back drop! Cage drags Marston up, reels him in, puts one out, an d gives Marston a POWERBOMB! Cage then tags to Kaun, Liona steps in with him. Tupu runs in, dodges The Gates, but Cage SUPERKICKS him! Then the Gates get Tupu up to CLOSE THE GATES!

Cage drags Marston over, and the trio TRIPLE SLAMS him! Kaun covers, The Cage of Agony wins!

Winners: The Cage of Agony, by pinfall

This dangerous trio is only more dangerous now that they’re the ones in charge! Will they be right on the heels of the Unified AEW & ROH World Trios Champions?

 

Rocky Romero VS Shota Umino!

It’s another Forbidden Door appetizer as Azucar “welcomes” The Roughneck back to AEW! #SHOOTER has learned a lot from Jon Moxley over the past four years, will he show all those lessons have paid off? Or will Rocky make it clear Shota’s still got a lot to learn?

The bell rings and the two shake hands to show there’s sportsmanship here. The fans cheer, the two tie up, and Shota wrenches to a wristlock. Rocky rolls, slips around, facelocks and cravats. Shota swim moves to wrench and wrangle Rocky to the mat. Rocky stands, Shota wrenches and wristlocks, but Rocky pulls hair. The ref reprimands, but Rocky wrenches through to an IRON OCTOPUS! Shota endures, powers out and throws Rocky down. Shota has the toehold, then digs a knee into the knee. Rocky turns over, stands up, clinches, and they end up on ropes. The ref counts, Rocky slowly lets off, and then CHOPS!

Shota just stares Rocky down! The fans fire up, and Shota winds up to CHOPS! Rocky staggers and sputters, Shota fires forearms! Shota spins, Rocky ducks the elbow, but runs into a scoop and DROP! Then a basement dropkick! The fans cheer and Shota does a dance similar to Mercedes Mone’s! Shota stomps Rocky around, CLUBS him, then stalks him to ropes. Shota CLUBS Rocky again, but Rocky grits his teeth. Shota ROCKS Rocky against ropes, then has him in a corner. Shota stomps and UPPERCUTS, then he stalks Rocky. Shota stomps Rocky, UPPERCUTS again, then whips to ropes. Rocky holds ropes to BOOT back!

Shota runs up but Rocky DUMPS Shota out! Rocky builds speed and DIVES! Shota’s head hits the desk and the ref checks him out while Rampage goes picture in picture.

It seems Shota is okay so the ref goes back to the ring. Rocky stands, fires up, and gives us some Latino Heat. Rocky puts Shota in the ring, drops a knee into the back, then stomps Shota before dropping a knee on the chest! Cover, TWO! Shota toughs it out but Rocky drags him up. Rocky KICKS the bad arm, wrenches it, then hits an ELBOW BREAKER! Shota goes to ropes, Rocky puts him through ropes, to KICK again! Rocky goes up a corner, gives some more Latino Heat, then MISSILE DROPKICKS! Shota flounders, Rocky covers, TWO! Rocky argues the count but the count was fair, so Rocky clamps onto Shota with a cobra clutch!

Rocky thrashes Shota around but Shota endures. Shota fights up, throws elbows, but Rocky CLUBS him on the back. Rocky TOSSES Shota out, then aims from the apron! CROSSBODY, but Shota catches him! Shota pops Rocky up but Rocky slips free, so Shota SHOTGUNS him down! Both men are on the floor on the outside and the fans rally up. Shota rises up, fetches Rocky, and puts him in the ring. But Rocky DROPKICKS Shota back! Shota is down in the corner and Rampage goes to break.

Rampage returns and Rocky clotheslines Shota in a corner! Rocky keeps going, and clotheslines again! Then he keeps going, but Shota DROPKICKS him down! The fans fire up and Shota pounds the mat. The fans rally behind Shota and he aims at Rocky at the ropes. Slingshot, APRON DDT! The fans fire up again as Rocky flops to the floor! Shota puts Rocky in, then goes up a corner. Shota aims as Rocky flounders, MISSILE DROPKICK! Shota hurries to clinch, EXPLODER! Cover, TWO! Rocky survives but Shota stays focused. Shota waits on Rocky to rise up, then runs in, IGNIT- NO, Rocky makes it a backslide!

Shota rolls through the cover, blocks a kick, ducks the enzigiri, but not the REWIND HEEL! Shota staggers to a corner, Rocky runs in. Shota dodges, runs in, but Rocky UPPERCUTS! Rocky goes up and up and TORNADO DDTS! Rocky pounds the mat, the fans rally behind him now, and he aims from a corner. Shota rises, Rocky runs in, SLICED BREAD!! Cover, TWO!! Shota survives and Rocky roars! The fans are torn as Rocky drags Shota up. Rocky fires forearms, but Shota just eggs him on! The fans like that, so Rocky fires more forearms! Shota roars, but Rocky UPPERCUTS! And cravat, for the SLICED- NO, Shota poops free!

Shota POP-KNEES, then IGNITION!! Cover, TWO!! Rocky survives but Shota takes aim from the corner now! A shoutout to Ospreay here with his BLAZE BLADE!! And then PARADIGM SHIFT!! Cover, Shota wins!

Winner: Shota Umino, by pinfall

The Roughneck does indeed prove that what he learned from his senpai, his upperclassmen, have indeed made him into a great wrestler! But will he become one of the greatest wrestlers as he continues to battle all around the world?

 

Satnam Singh w/ Sonjay Dutt & Jay Lethal VS Rosario Grillo!

The One in a Billion is a big, big man, but he still has a lot to prove if he wants to be the best of the best. Will he finally start building on a win streak? Or will Rosario overcome this mountain of a man?

The bell rings, and Satnam offers a handshake? Rosario takes it, but Satnam won’t let go! Rosario kicks and kicks and CHPOS and CHOPS, but Satnam’s grip is too strong! And speaking of, he grabs Rosario by the neck, to PO-UP BEARHUG!! Satnam ragdolls Rosario! Rosario is OUT, Satnam wins!

Winner: Satnam Singh, by pinfall

Satnam TOSSES Rosario aside, having made quick work of the mere mortal. Sonjay Dutt gets in the ring with a mic to say, “Hey hey hey hey hey! Bubba (Jay Lethal), tell ’em, what’re you gonna do?” Lethal takes the mic to say ladies and gentlemen, Satnam Singh is on a freakin’ roll! Satnam just squashed Grillo in record time, and Lethal is so impressed that not only will he beat his opponent tonight, but he and Sonjay have a little side bet that Lethal can do it even faster than what Satnam just did. Satnam chuckles and Lethal says he’s done waiting! Bring that poor shmuck out here! Did Lethal not read the match card? Lethal’s up against THE BASTARD!!

Fans fire up as Pac makes his entrance out here. Pac already said he was in a bad mood on Dynamite, and surely Lethal taking him lightly isn’t helping things. Will Pac make sure Sonjay wins that side bet with Lethal?

PAC VS Jay Lethal w/ Sonjay Dutt & Satnam Singh!

The bell rings, Pac dodges Lethal to flying-mare! Pac has the headlock, Lethal puts him in a corner, and the ref counts. Pac lets go but Lethal stomps a mudhole! The ref counts, Lethal stops and walks it off. Sonjay knows he’s already won the side bet but he still wants Lethal to win the match. Lethal tosses Pac out, but Pac lands on the apron. Pac RAMS into Lethal, slingshots up and over, then comes back, only for Lethal to hip toss! Lethal cartwheels but Pac kips up! Pac SUPERKICKS Lethal, Lethal bails out, so Pac runs to FLY! Direct hit and Pac stares through the camera into the souls of the AEW roster!

Pac drags Lethal up, but he’s wary of Satnam. Pac puts Lethal in, goes up, and fans chant “HE’S OUR BASTARD!” Lethal rises, but Sonjay distracts the ref! Pac hops down, BOOTS Lethal, but Satnam trips Pac! And YANKS him out! The ref saw that one! The fans cheer as the ref EJECTS Satnam! Team Triple J is freaking out, but Lethal rains down fists on Pac. The ref counts, Lethal lets off but the fans sing ‘Hey hey hey! Goodbye~!” to Satnam. Lethal whips Pac hard into railing, then RAMS him into the POST! Lethal then runs to DROPKICK Pac down! Sonjay mockingly asks if Pac’s hurt, but the ref tells him to back off!

Lethal tells Sonjay to cool it so he doesn’t get kicked out. Lethal drags Pac up and into the ring while Sonjay mouths off to fans. Lethal drags Pac up, but Pac fires body shots. Lethal TOSSES Pac out, builds speed, and Lethal fakes the dive to Fargo Strut instead. The fans “WOO~” with Lethal and he smiles. Sonjay says Lethal’s the man! Lethal then goes out to fetch Pac, but Pac whips! Lethal reverses, Pac hits steel steps! Sonjay mocks Pac again with a fake apology, and Rampage goes picture in picture.

Lethal leaves Pac behind, and he counts along with the ring count. Pac is still down at 5 of 10, but he drags himself up with the apron. Pac flounders in at 8, but Lethal stomps him down! Lethal drags Pac up, bumps him off buckles, then stomps a mudhole. Lethal RAMS Pac into the corner, snapmares him into a chinlock, and he grinds Pac down. Pac endures, pries at the hold, and fights up. The fans rally as Pac breaks free! Pac ROCKS Lethal, CHOPS him, then CHOPS, CHOPS and CHOPS again! Pac whips Lethal, Lethal reverses then TOSSES Pac out! Lethal wants the ring count again, but that’s just all distraction so Sonjay can stomp away!

The fans boo and try to point Sonjay out, but he scurries away. Lethal gets the ref to finally count, and then joins in. Pac is still down at 5, drags himself over, and Lethal grows anxious. Pac rises up and drags himself in at 9! Lethal runs to ELBOW DROP! Cover, ROPEBREAK! Pac survives by a literal foot but Lethal drops elbow after elbow on that leg! Lethal just keeps going with elbow after elbow, then soaks up some heat before dropping a knee on the knee! Cover, TWO! Pac toughs it out but Lethal covers again, TWO! Lethal argues the count, the ref says it is a fair count, so Lethal drags Pac around by the leg.

Lethal stomps away on Pac’s leg, and Rampage returns to single picture as Lethal steps through. Pac kicks but Lethal blocks that, and now Lethal steps through on that leg. Pac kicks again, Lethal blocks again, but then Pac kicks Lethal away! Lethal comes back, trips Pac, and steps through, but into a cradle counter! TWO!! Lethal escapes, gets around, back suplex! Pac lands out, so Lethal handsprings, but Pac SHOTGUNS Lethal while he’s upside-down! The fans fire up while both men are down! Sonjay coaches Lethal but the fans rally for Pac. A standing count starts, Pac drags himself up with ropes to stand at 5.

Pac storms up, blocks a shot to ROCK Lethal! Pac ROCKS Lethal again and again, then SOBATS! KICKS! SOBATS! Pac runs, to SHOTGUN BOOT! Lethal is dazed and Sonjay is worried as Pac goes up a corner. Pac watches like a hawk, to MISSILE DROPKICK! Cover, TWO! Lethal stays in this and Sonjay coaches him again. The fans rally for Pac as he watches Lethal rise again. Pac waistlocks but Lethal fights the lift. Lethal trips Pac, powers through, but Pac kicks and kicks and kicks! Lethal lets go, but he KICKS Pac’s leg out! Lethal drags Pac up, for a SHIN BREAKER! Then DRAGON SCREW! Then Lethal steps through, for the FIGURE FOUR!!

Pac endures, Sonjay tells him to quit, but the shoulders are down! ONE as Pac tilts to the side! Pac reaches out for ropes but Lethal thrashes and pulls on that leg! Pac fights over to the ROPEBREAK! Lethal lets go, the ref checks with Pac, but Pac says he’s still in this. Lethal rains down fists, then goes to a corner. The fans boo as Lethal climbs, and Lethal calls his shot. But Pac goes up to get a leg! Lethal CLUBS away on Pac, then drags him up top. Lethal reels Pac in, but Pac fights the lift! Pac back drops Lethal away! The fans fire up and Pac adjusts. Sonjay stresses out as Pac aims, but Sonjay gets on the apron!

Pac hops down, runs up and BOOTS Sonjay down! The fans cheer, but Lethal is lurking! Lethal runs in, Pac dodges, but Lethal switches to SNAP GERMAN! Lethal handsprings, but Pac sidesteps to run! But Lethal still hits a CUTTER! But that wasn’t lethal enough, so Lethal handsprings again! LETHAL- NO, Pac dodges to LARIAT!! And then, BRUTALIZER!! Lethal is caught, he QUITS, Pac wins!!

Winner: Pac, by submission

Pac makes Lethal suffer a few seconds longer before letting go. That’s what Lethal gets for calling The Bastard a shmuck! Pac is going to be in the Men’s Owen Hart Tournament, will he win it all to go All In for the AEW World Championship?


My Thoughts:

A great Rampage here, even with an extra squash match for the fun of it. Cage of Agony are definitely rolling, not sure they’ll be going for the trios titles while a Heel faction like Bang Bang Gang has them, but Cage, Kaun & Liona would definitely be a tough challenge for them. And I really liked that they segued from Satnam’s squash win to Lethal’s great main event with Pac. Great win for Pac to build momentum towards the Owen Hart Cup, I do like the possibility of Pac being in the main event of All In. Whether Pac is facing Ospreay or Swerve for the world title, he’ll give us great promos in the build and an awesome match in Wembley.

Great match from Rocky and Shota, and a great win for Shota. There might be something in the works for Forbidden Door, but I don’t see Shota getting in on title stories in AEW. Really good promo from Deonna and Rosa, and their No DQ match is going to be awesome stuff. That match can really go either way, but something tells me that Deonna wins. As it stands, we’ve got two Face champions in the Women’s Division, and that won’t change after Forbidden Door, so Deonna is a very strong Heel to go after Storm or Mone. And speaking of, great opener out of Storm VS Windsor, which I clearly thought was gonna be the main event but oh well. Still a good showing for Windsor and a good win for Storm, and Storm has momentum going to Forbidden Door, though she surely isn’t losing.

My Score: 8.7/10
